Great segment of film (has no beginning or end credits) about the construction of the BART line. The unveilling of the car is shown, as well as dignitaries with disembodied voices crowing about how great it is. From there, we're shown the progress of construction of the many different aspects of the system. Quite interesting really, and moves along at a good pace.
